How Protect helps to ease a hangover
With Christmas just around the corner, it’s the season for a festive tipple or two (or three!). Unfortunately, a good night out is usually followed by the dreaded morning after. But help is at hand with the Pura Collagen protect formula - a unique blend of Bioactive Collagen Peptides®, vitamins, minerals, and ginger. Designed to strengthen immunity, boost brain function, and reduce tiredness, protect can help ease a hangover and leave you feeling ready for the next celebration.

What exactly is a hangover?

The different symptoms that make up a hangover start to appear a few hours after stopping drinking, when alcohol levels in the blood begin to drop. Alongside ethanol (pure alcohol), wine, beer, and spirits contain other substances that are produced during the distillation and fermentation processes. Histamine, sulphites, yeasts, methanol, acetones, and amines all contribute to hangover symptoms like headache, tiredness, nausea, sweating, poor memory, and brain fog. The liver metabolises all these substances, and in doing so it uses up a lot of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The net effect of a boozy night out is that we end up dehydrated, depleted of nutrients, and feeling hungover.

How does Protect help ease a hangover?

Pura Collagen protect formula contains a unique blend of ingredients that can help ease a hangover. IMMUPEPT™ collagen peptides These peptides target collagen-rich tissues in the bone and skin that form part of your immune defences. Alcohol compromises immune function, which means your defences are low during the party season. Our protect blend uses specific IMMUPEPT™ collagen peptides derived from grass-fed European cows, for optimum immune support. Ginger Ginger root contains powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory compounds. Research into the use of ginger in folk medicine found that it can protect liver cells from damage and relieve the classic hangover symptoms of nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea. Iron Iron is crucial for the healthy circulation of oxygen around the body, and for supporting energy levels and immune function. The dose of iron in protect helps combat hangover fatigue and tiredness. Vitamin C Busy party season coming up? Then vitamin C is a must-have nutrient. It works alongside iron and zinc to support immunity against colds and flu, and as a close team mate to the B-vitamins for detoxing alcohol and fighting tiredness and fatigue. Vitamin D, Zinc, and B12 Zinc, B12, and vitamin D enhance immunity and play an important role in cognitive function. Together they support memory, concentration, and mental clarity.

Does Protect have any side effects?

There have been no recorded side effects in the last 30 years from using collagen supplements, when products are used at their recommended dosages. Protect is not suitable if you have allergies or sensitivities to ginger, orange, or any of other the additional ingredients.
